Secondary Teacher's Pocketbook by Brin Best

As we find out more about the brain and how people learn, the craft of teaching is undergoing something of a revolution. Teachers are achieving outstanding results by using a range of new approaches that motivate their students and help them to learn more effectively. This new, 2011 edition of the Secondary Teacher's Pocketbook, aimed at helping teachers become more effective and reflective practitioners, condenses into one pocket-size companion all the information needed to bring about dramatic improvements in the classroom. The extensively illustrated pocketbook will help teachers become even better practitioners; it will encourage reflection and stimulate discussion with colleagues; help with career development and prove a handy reference guide to key educational issues. The book covers : Preparing to teach: teaching and learning theories, multiple intelligences, accelerated learning in a nutshell, schemes of work, lesson planning, etc The craft of teaching: from classroom organisation, lesson structure, questioning technique, pace, learning style and differentiation to discipline, targets, assessment, and inspection. Other aspects of the role: being a form tutor, meetings, stress, time management, etc Career progression: CPD, performance management, job applications and interviews A final reference section looks at whole-school issues underpinning effective teaching Author Brin Best is a consultant specialising in school improvement and classroom change. He writes and speaks widely on education, drawing on his own experience as a teacher, head of department, school development officer, college lecturer and LA advisory teacher. He is currently carrying out doctoral research at Leeds University into effective teaching and learning approaches
